This problem occurs especially because you opened another program that uses your webcam. You should close
any other program that might be using your webcam because a simple
webcam can only interact with one program. If it doesn't work, try
reinstalling it / then messenger with another version. If you are satisfied, please rate or/and leave a testimonial. Thanks!
Try uninstalling the camera drivers and install the latest camera drivers. Try uninstalling the yahoo messenger and reinstalling it. If the problem exists, try some other versions of yahoo messenger. Try Skype to check if same problem exists there also...
If you have Yahoo Messenger 10 the icon is no longer used check your settings Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.
Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger. COMPATIBILITY WITH YAHOO MESSENGER Use Internet Explorer to visit this page to check compatibility and automatically download the latest webcam control
CONFIGURE SOFTWARE Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the Yahoo software may have difficulty in locating it. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in, if yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager. Of all the chat programs, Yahoo is the most painful software to set up but if you follow these instructions you should be ok.
INTERNET CONNECTION Webcam connected Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK
TESTING > Messenger > My webcam - the warning panel will launch, click 'OK' and your webcam will start. You should be rewarded at this stage with your happy smiling face.
SET WEBCAM DEFAULT With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts
PERMISSION OPTIONS > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam - make your selections ( who you will allow to view you) > Apply > OK
IN USE When you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > Actions > 'Invite to view my webcam'. Messenger 10:- > Actions > More Actions > invite to view my webcam. This will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'Accept' your webcam broadcast will start- There can be considerable time lag ( +1 minute) before they see you, so don't be too impatient ( You can check the status on the bottom left of your webcam panel. You can 'drag and drop' the frame to a convenient location by grabbing the top border.
Your contacts may need to configure their connection the same as INTERNET CONNECTION above (Ignoring webcam connected) if they get a "webcam not connected" message
I will suggest you to check it first to check it using different yahoo client likeYahelite, Yazak etc. these clients are more secure to use instead of yahoo messenger. or You can uninstall the existing yahoo messenger, then download and install latest version of Yahoo Messenger 10 Beta or Yahoo Messenger 9.0
well, i finally found the website for logitech and found an article on there from a tech guy, (i guess that is what he does) the article was titled, "How to make your logitech camera work in an im." when i read that i followed the instructions and know it is not my cam, but the messenger i was using. i don't know what to do about that because it is yahoo and there support is NILL!!!!!!, i repeat NILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it takes some finding (the article) but it says to try your cam for 5 minutes making a video from quick capture. if it works ok then it is the website and not the cam. may i say yahoo stinks! also he said that it is 99% of the time the website is the problem. not a quote. hope this helps someone out there that is having the same trouble.
Bob P, I have Logitech Quick Cam STX not exactly what you have but I think close. I got it to work with Messenger. I have made it through the installation. Not sure what I did to make it work. I would assume it can be done. If you think it would help to compare our settings some how or for me to help in some other way please let me know. I will be online lots during the day next week as I am not working next week.
